Walking through pain

August 30, 2018

Walking with Jesus

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

Today’s Thought, Bible Verse & Reading, Devotion, Worship Song and Prayer

A thought…
No pain, no gain. Physically, mentally and spirituality. I don’t understand why we are created that way, but do know staying and growing closer to my Creator is my only hope for understanding. Trying to avoid it only opens the door for the evil one.

A verse…

"Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?”
Romans 2:4 NLT

A reading…
Romans 2:1-16
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+2%3A1-16&version=NLT

A devotion…
Sometimes Pain Is a Good Thing

God designed us to respond to pain in a way that will bring goodness if we won’t run, but instead remain in Him or return to Him.

Walk with eyes of faith and a heart likened to Jesus’s

August 29, 2018

Walking with Jesus

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

Today’s Thought, Bible Verse & Reading, Devotion, Worship Song and Prayer

A thought…
You have to have enough faith and love for all those you call mine. Only in Jesus can you find the source for such unstoppable and unconditional faith and love. Know this, if you believe in Jesus; you must be aware of the evil one who roams this world under the sun like a lion seeking to separate and devour all that he can.

A verse…

Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.
1 Peter 5:8 NLT

A reading…
1 Peter 5:1-11
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Peter+5%3A1-11&version=NLT

1 Peter 5:9 NLT
Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.

Walking with emotion

August 28, 2018

Walking with Jesus

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

Today’s Thought, Bible Verse & Reading, Devotion, Worship Song and Prayer

A thought…
I am always pleasantly surprised how God puts the right devotion, verse, reading, or song before me.

A verse…

He looked around at them angrily and was deeply saddened by their hard hearts. Then he said to the man, “Hold out your hand.” So the man held out his hand, and it was restored! Mark 3:5

A reading…
Mark 3:1-6
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+3%3A1-6&version=NLT

A devotion…
Embracing Emotions
Love Language Minute Devotonal
https://tecartabible.com/603.html#Share-volume=2001;resid=17

God gave us emotions for growth, maturity, fulfillment, and enjoyment. Feelings were made to be our friends, and they can serve as important signals. When we experience a negative emotion, it tells us that something needs attention.

A song…

A prayer…
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior. Thank you for emotions. You have made us in your image as emotional beings. Help me to look at my feelings as a gift. Please give me the wisdom to see the problem behind the emotion and deal with it before my strong feelings hurt and cause pain. Amen

Walking and stepping on a mess

August 24, 2018

Walking with Jesus

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

Today’s Thought, Bible Verse & Reading, Devotion, Worship Song and Prayer

A thought…
Déjà vu? No it’s you. When you keep finding yourself in the same situation. It’s time to search out and examine the evidence and to see what is clearly wrong.

A verse…

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
James 1:2-4 NIV

A devotion or two…
When We’re Stuck In a Mess
CrossCards: Encouragement for Today – August 23, 2018
https://www.crosscards.com/devotionals/encouragement-for-today/encouragement-for-today-august-23-2018.html

We replace our old thoughts with empowering truths from God’s Word, “Go-To Scripts”.

1. I was made for more than to be stuck in a vicious cycle of defeat.

‘You have been wandering around in this hill country long enough; turn to the north. Deuteronomy 2:3

2. When tempted, I either remove the temptation or remove myself from the situation.

The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. So, my dear friends, flee from the worship of idols. 1 Corinthians 10:13-14

3. I don’t have to worry about letting God down because I was never holding Him up — God’s grace is sufficient.

Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. 10 That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-11

A prayer…
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior. Thank You for continually offering me hope. I’m choosing to believe today that I don’t have to stay stuck in my messes, even if they are messes of my own making. I’m tuning my ear to Your voice today. I’m filling my heart and mind with the truth of Your Word. And I’m heading in a new direction with You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Today’s prayer from today’s devotion.

Walking without taking a break

August 23, 2018

Walking with Jesus

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

Today’s Thought, Bible Verse & Reading, Devotion, Worship Song and Prayer

A thought…
Give me a break God. Is an expression I find myself saying out loud when I feel I have backed myself into a corner. By over committing, procrastinating to much, or just worn out by the mundane routines of my life under the sun. Just as often I follow it with thank You Jesus.

A verse…

“‘I have the right to do anything,’ you say — but not everything is beneficial. ‘I have the right to do anything’ — but I will not be mastered by anything.”
1 Corinthians 6:12 (NIV)

A reading…
Colossians 3
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Colossians+3&version=NLT

A devotion…
When Something is Taking More of You
CrossCards: Encouragement for Today – August 20, 2018
https://www.crosscards.com/devotionals/encouragement-for-today/encouragement-for-today-august-20-2018.html

When something — no matter what it is — takes more from us than it gives, we are wise to put it down. We are wise to give it less of us, so we have more to offer those around us.

A song…

Walking in worship

August 22, 2018

Walking with Jesus

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

Today’s Thought, Worship Song and Prayer

A thought…
Surround yourself with the Lord. It’s about a relationship with Him. Pray without ceasing, read and or listen to the Bible regularly, read a Daily Devotion, study your faith and apologetics, listen to music that praises and worships Him, like today’s song.

Iron sharpens iron.

A song… my latest favorite!

Only Jesus
Casting Crowns
https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/only-jesus/1420616701?i=1420617207

Make it count, leave a mark, build a name for yourself
Dream your dreams, chase your heart, above all else
Make a name the world remembers
But all an empty world can sell is empty dreams
I got lost in the light but it was up to me
To make a name the world remembers
But Jesus is the only name to remember

And I, I don’t want to leave a legacy
I don’t care if they remember me
Only Jesus
And I, I’ve only got one life to live
I’ll let every second point to Him
Only Jesus

All the kingdoms built, all the trophies won
Will crumble into dust when it’s said and done
‘Cause all that really matters
Did I live the truth to the ones I love
Was my life the proof that there is only One
Whose name will last forever

And I, I don’t want to leave a legacy
I don’t care if they remember me
Only Jesus
And I, I’ve only got one life to live
I’ll let every second point to Him
Only Jesus

Jesus is the only name
Jesus is the only name
Jesus is the only name to remember
Jesus is the only name
Jesus is the only name
Jesus is the only name to remember

And I, I don’t want to leave a legacy
I don’t care if they remember me
Only Jesus
And I, I’ve only got one life to live
I’ll let every second point to Him
Only Jesus

I don’t want to leave a legacy
I don’t care if they remember me
Only Jesus

Casting Crowns – Only Jesus Lyrics | MetroLyrics

A prayer…

Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior. Thank You for Word and all the inspired writings, sermons and music that’s available to us to praise and worship You. Help us to seek and find You in everything. Amen
